Owner blasts ‘idiots' who freed horse to fall into hole

22 November 2013

OwnerputsHitoutUK.JPGUK - A horse owner has hit out at “idiots” who let eight horses out of a field, prompting a three-hour rescue operation when one tumbled several feet into a hole.

Four-year-old cob mare Dolly was initially feared stolen after going missing from a field at Kinfauns in the early hours of Sunday morning.

She was found eight hours later in the narrow entrance of a wartime shelter 10 feet below the ground.

It took owner Hannah Pedgrift three and a half hours to coax the petrified pony into walking backwards along the passage and up some stairs to freedom.

The 18-year-old said police alerted her to the horses’ escape at 4.30am and that she suspected the gate had been left open deliberately.
